Richie Mo’unga, the great star of Crusaders and world rugby, became an irreplaceable player in the New Zealand franchise. His quality and prowess earned him a place on the Christchurch squad and the All Blacks.
In this season of Super Rugby Aoteroa and Trans-Tasman, his game and the numbers supported the importance of the opening he has on the field of play with his right extension. Obviously, in addition, his talent on the court.
In what was the previous contest to the current one that the New Zealand and Australian franchises got together, the number 10 of those in Christchurch achieved a total of 104 points in just 11 dates. He averaged nearly 10 units per game. Of the 104, ten were for two conquests and 94 between penalties and conversions.
To those extraordinary numbers, we add what was done in the Trans-Tasman Super Rugby. There he got a much higher start. In just three dates, the opening billed almost half of what it did in the last tournament, 51 points. He split into four tries and hit 31 between penalties and conversions. This gives a global between both contests of 155 units. However, there is still one away game against Melbourne Rebels.
